Celebrity property porn. A certain Ulrikakkakaka is selling her house and it is soooo beautiful. if I had a spare 3 million quid, I'd snap it up! grin;jsessionid=6B0F0036BD2ECD221EF8EBB69A03E7F5?premiumA=true

It's gorgeous!

valiumredhead Sat 06-Jul-13 15:10:37

It not out.

Not minor things, the house would not work for me at all, will ask Dh what he thinks when he gets in, don't think he'd like it either.

I LOVE property porn and find it fascinating how one smile person can love a house and another hate itsmile

I'd have to knock out down and start again, the land is lovely and locationgrin

Valiumredhead - minor things that you dislike then. I think we all feel like that when we buy a second hand house.

valiumredhead Sat 06-Jul-13 15:02:25

Odd there's not more pics of the bedrooms, only 2 and it's a 6 bed house.

valiumredhead Sat 06-Jul-13 15:00:17

Thought you'd never ask grin

It's not my type of house at all,I want to grow clematis up the outside to soften the edges which defeats the point of the house completely!

The kitchen , nice work space but too bleak and stark.

The chimney flue thing in the bedroom, odd.

Odd en suite with not shower screen, not keen on wet room type bath rooms.

The fireplace in the family room-so small for such big wall, looks out of proportion.

The TV room looks like a warehouse and I loathe halogen lights in ceilings.

I'm sure Ulrika feels the same and that's why she's movingwink grin

I can't view the other link so can't comment on it unless
Someone can make it clickable for me as I'm on my phone --and I could rip that to shreds too--grin

PerilsAsinger Sat 06-Jul-13 14:41:37

sorry, valiumredhead

PerilsAsinger Sat 06-Jul-13 14:41:24

Valiumhead - what things do you dislike about this house then?

valiumredhead Sat 06-Jul-13 14:16:17

So do I!

RCheshire Sat 06-Jul-13 13:38:27

When people say they don't like a style of house (as a few have) I like to see what they do like.

PerilsAsinger Sat 06-Jul-13 13:27:20

RCheshire - I think you've gone a bit off topic there. We're talking about a house in a particular area. Why link to a house in a different area for a different price - I don't get it.

RCheshire Sat 06-Jul-13 12:50:58

Agree with valium. Nice if you are looking for an upmarket version of Ikea (& I do think very nicely done if that Scandinavian style is what you're looking for) but does very little for me.

I'd prefer this at one third of the price. Granted wouldn't be that price in Henley!

valiumredhead Sat 06-Jul-13 12:50:21

I do like a big drive thoughgrin

valiumredhead Sat 06-Jul-13 12:47:00

God no! I could spend 3 mil much better. For every one thing I like there were 5 things I dislikedgrin

Flossiechops Sat 06-Jul-13 12:41:19

Stunning - absolutely love it!

PerilsAsinger Sat 06-Jul-13 12:16:53

The only thing I don't like about it is the shower room. There's no curtain/glass. What's that all about? Splashes all over the floor and I get cold as soon as I turn off the hot water.

I think it is all her own furniture.
She did a Come Dine with me on Tv years ago in her previous house and I recognise some of the pieces.
Her previous house was prettier .

Gorgeous, I'll put in an offer tonight after I've won the lottery.

NewLifeDownSouth Sat 06-Jul-13 07:09:05

Love that corner fireplace

kitsmummy Fri 05-Jul-13 22:45:58

Oh god, I pretty much need that house, nicest i've seen in a long time

mydoorisalwaysopen Fri 05-Jul-13 22:04:24

We've got the car rug the children's room - again, end of similarity. Who's SO'C?

bico Fri 05-Jul-13 21:52:45

£500,000 Knowing the area I think she is optimistic if she thinks she'll get the asking price.

Xmasbaby11 Fri 05-Jul-13 21:51:33

It's beautiful! But I don't like the fireplaces and it'd be a bugger to heat.

Relaxedandhappyperson Fri 05-Jul-13 21:49:45

Wonder how much she's spent doing it up. The asking price is a LOT more than she paid.

Erlack Fri 05-Jul-13 21:48:30

I like tomatoes...I guess a lot of it is just my taste. Then again I have just bought a totally impractical house with tons of stairs next to a river when I have two small children, one toddler aged.
